    It depends on how much the CPU is used during the playing of the game and also how bright the display is.

    Maybe you can get two-three hours out of it.

    Open a game ie. Sims 3 and play it? That wasn't meant to be a trick question.

    Do you really want to know the answer?

    Why? If you're going to get it irrespective of the battery life (which, in my humble opinion, is a really stupid reason to buy/not buy a game) then it doesn't even matter and you can indeed test it out when you get it.

    ok, im just curious, im just wondering how long my battery will last when i buy sims 3, from someone that will actually give me an answer rather than pick at every little word and make a fuss, please :)

    oh, and by the way, my decision on whether to buy the game or not doesn't depend on the battery life, im still gonna get it :)
